The court of arbitration (TAS) announced that it will not reveal the decision on Atletico Madrid's transfer ban appeal until Thursday. The announcement was supposed to happen on Wednesday but TAS relayed the delay to the club on Wednesday afternoon.
The committee of control and discipline for UEFA imposed a ban that would span two transfer windows, which means the club can sign but not register players for two transfer periods, for the signing of underage players.
If TAS do reject their appeal, Atletico can still sign players but they would not be allowed to register them until January. This would mean that Atletico would recover many of their players who were sent on loan in an effort to bulk up their squad for the coming season.
